New Lexus IS 300h and Refreshed LF-LC Concept Coming to Geneva

After its debut at the Detroit Auto Show in mid-January, the new Lexus IS sedan is going to make its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

This time, it will be shown in hybrid form, as the IS 300h, a new powertrain that combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine running on the Atkinson cycle with an efficient electric motor. The model will likely be offered exclusively with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) driving the rear wheels.

Also on show in Geneva will be a refreshed version of the LF-LC Concept, shown in Opal Blue. The model previews a possible new large coupe model for Lexus, a bit like BMW 6-Series, but with a distinct Japanese luxury flavor. The car was designed in California strictly as a concept but response has been so great that it might be put into production.

So with both current and future Lexus products on show, this year's Geneva Motor Show promises to be a good one.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
